About Me


To keep things simple. Life is too short to be stressed!


i am 29. born in mexico though lived in too many countries to really be from any one place.
i am currently working free lance as a consultant in development issues, lecturing on international relations and setting up and NGO. i tend to hang out in the cuernavaca/mexico city area though if there is something to do or see somewhere else, i will be there!


nothing like packing two t-shirts, hitting the road and grabbing some ice-cream for the way...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


in cancún, playa del carmen, tijuana, rosarito, manchester, managua, guatemala, san francisco and in various cities in Brazil. it was great!


Traveling, reading, "artsy" movies and good conversation are some of those things that make life engaging.

I'm a big runner. Hoping to run my first half marathon this year. Love to party but also need quiet moments to contemplate the sky.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

while backpacking through mexico, in the coasts of michoacán i was able to see a sea turtle lay hundreds of eggs. it's really quite something to see nature at its best!
